Week 1
Composition, Framing, and Layout

Day 1

In this section will be learning about composition and framing. I want to look at still life photography as a way to generate images that you’ll be able to make art from. The first couple of projects we will be doing different kinds of drawings of some of the still life photographs that you’ve collected or taken. So you also might want to think about how meaningful that photograph is that you’re collecting. Another thing to think about is how easy will it be for you to draw things in the photograph. For example, complicated labels and complex designs might be a bit hard to work with.
